Our Flower Play Rooms

 

When your child joins us, at Bethany Day Nursery you will be introduced to his/her key worker.  The key worker will build a special relationship and take prime responsibility for the individual needs of your child.  They will let you know daily of the activities your child has been involved in, what progress they have made and inform your child’s routine information such as sleep, meals and toileting.

 

Each room is lead by a room supervisor.  Qualified nursery nurses work alongside the room supervisor and take responsibility for individual children (Keyworker system).  The age span of each group is approximate and the individual needs and development of the children are always considered
